From a preference for credit cards over cash to online dating, we live in an age that is all about the swipes. We are guilty of short attention spans, indecisiveness and an openness to exploring options, and guiltier of engrossing ourselves in cringe content like TikTok. Now, a new app wants to capitalise on our behaviours. Releasing itself from the shackles of specific categories, the app creates an online playground of content for the user to mindlessly scroll through.

Today I was home to eat, when they knocked on the door. Not expecting a guest, so I felt a bit strange. He was a peddler. The man was selling sex toys, and I found it interesting. I asked him to enter the house to see the goods that he sold. He had dildos of all sizes and colors, a great collection.
SWYP was designed to be an easier, more visually enticing way to watch porn and discover new content. Adult entertainment site YouPorn has created its own TikTok-style app that will fill your feed exclusively with porn. The web app, called SWYP, cuts out a lot of the chaos that exists on the standard adult site, like disruptive ads and the clusterfuck of NSFW thumbnails, and instead offers a continuous, swipeable stream of full-screen video previews. Once you find one you want to watch, just swipe left. Most people will probably get over that pretty quickly, though. Thankfully, the feed is silent — something I discovered only after sheepishly warning the Input office about the porn possibly blaring from my phone — and sound will only play once you swipe for the full video, where you can tap to unmute. But you're probably only doing this in a private place anyway, right? YouPorn knows it's a carbon-copy of TikTok — Much like other popular short video apps such as TikTok or the recently-launched Byte , SWYP displays brief, choppy clips on a neverending feed, each of which lasts just a few seconds.
